Roos Down Dees

slape 2

A Grade debutant Rhys SLAPE enjoys the Roos club song after a victory over Echunga. The Roos ran out victors 19.10 (124) to Echunga 3.12 (30). As tradition has it, any player who enjoys a maiden victory in the seniors, is the centre of attention in the “Post Match” huddle.  The Roos have maintained their hold on fifth place on the ladder.  With three rounds remaining before the finals; the Roos will look to continue their good form against Mt Lofty this Saturday at ABLE Storage Oval.
